    Hi
    I need help!

    When calculating damage stability for naval well dock ship following dds 079-1 standard, Should the well dock be assume flooded? If stern part tanks are flooded combine with well dock flooded then it is nearly impossible to compliance with damage stability criteria. Is there anyone can give me a answer? where can I find new version dds 079

    It would be helpful to see a general arrangement of tanks and compartments for your boat. In any case, if the vessel does not meet the criteria, the solution is simple: you must add watertight bulkheads that reduce the volume of the compartments capable of being flooded.

    Pretty much every naval standard that I have looked at says that worst case damage extent should be considered. It's why you have carpet plots.

    As Tansl says, more bulkheads reduce the volume which can be flooded.

    Thanks for reply stability

    Thanks for Tansl and Nick

    but it is nearly impossible to reduce the flooded volume by add bulkhead.
    anyway thanks
